Cee’s Fire Pit Made With Natural Building

Filmed July 19, 2016

I’ve been wanting to build an outdoor grill that could also act as an oven at 2 Dead Birch (our off-grid cabin in Newfoundland). Rather than pizza oven style, I liked the looks of the primitive ovens that use stonework. I watched videos on natural building and primitive ovens and decided to try a combo of the two. The natural clay deposits on the property seem quite gritty so I felt it was the right ratio of sand to clay. It worked great!

It’s been about a month since it was built and it’s apparent to me that my mixture was quite thin and perhaps not enough sand. It’s become quite dusty. I’m simply going to keep layering the clay over time. The layout is quite good, though!

Overnight Campfire Party

Filmed July 10, 2016

Just a quick little glimpse at our night out around the bay just off the East Coast Trail for a friend’s birthday. We were meant to go whale watching earlier but the boat was out of commission so a few of us just gathered for a campfire scoff & chat.
